      I just won a bake-off at my office with this recipe! I definitely recommend using high-quality dark chocolate because you would be amazed at the difference it makes. I also made a berry sauce to drizzle on top using frozen mixed berries and a few Tbs of sugar heated in a small saucepan. Everyone raved over how well the sauce complimented the torte, so I highly recommend it! For extra pizazz, decorate with fresh blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and slices of blood orange.
